Joane Somarriba: “LABORAL Kutxa’s long-term commitment to women’s cycling is exciting. It drew my attention to the whole team of people behind the riders and the passion of the people who are part of the LABORAL Kutxa-Fundación Euskadi project. The Cyclist have a great opportunity to become professionals, they have all the means and an exceptional staff to give one hundred percent and perform. They lack nothing to become cyclists. improved, not accidentally, it has become a benchmark for all cyclists in all categories who are committed or want to commit themselves to it.
This new stage was quite different from when I was a runner, and after a while I was cut. For me it was very enjoyable and a new experience to live closely again. I really want to learn and contribute at the same time since I empathize a lot with the runners. It is a tough sport that requires a lot of work, sacrifice and effort. I know what is behind a professional cyclist competing at the highest level and I hope I can contribute my experience as a rider. Give advice, but also listen and understand them; for me that is very important. Sometimes we forget that in competition everyone is necessary and therefore it is important to know their needs, doubts or concerns”.
